How long can a McDonald's paper cup hold liquid?

Have you ever wondered how long could McDonald's paper cup hold your drink? Me too...
Watch this McDonald's paper cup time-lapse video to find out.

For this project, I captured more than 124 000 photos. I had to use a very frequent interval otherwise I would have missed the interesting moment when the cup finally broke down.

They were orange juice, Pepsi, and water. I removed the water so early because nothing interesting happened to it, it just evaporated slowly, and by removing that cup I had more space on the screen for the 2 remaining ones. And I removed the Pepsi as well for the very same reason, so I could get closer to the orange juice cup which started to look the worst. I topped it up with water from time to time because it would have evaporated many times over, and the main goal was to "break" the cup.
